  • Anthony Martial plays for Manchester United versus West Ham in the Premier League

The 30-year old put his side 2-1 ahead of Arsenal in the 29th minute after a goal from Okazaki had cancelled Lacazette's opener.

Wenger revealed after the win that he offered Giroud the chance to leave the club this summer, but that the striker opted to stay, much to the delight of the manager. "That's how it came about but I think it was perhaps too early to celebrate because we didn't know how the match was going to pan out".

"But I don't want him to go and in the end he chose to stay and it was one of the days of recent weeks for me because I know how important he is".

'A player I am a big fan of, ' is how Jamie Carragher described Olivier Giroud on Friday night. Schmeichel's saves were keeping Leicester in front but he was beaten when Ramsey got on the end of Granit Xhaka's cross and, again, when substitute Giroud headed in a corner.

Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare was also pleased - even if the Foxes headed back to the East Midlands with nothing to show for their evening's endeavour.

Olivier Giroud has been linked with a move away from Arsenal with the arrival of fellow Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon.

The win could prove a crucial win for the Gunners, who lost their opening game last season 4-3 to Liverpool - the team that pipped them to fourth place and the final Champions League spot.

However, Arsenal's lead didn't last long as Shinji Okazaki hit back with a header only three minutes later after Harry Maguire nodded the ball back into the box. The compilers of calendar of the Premier League never has wished, and sent him to open the season, Arsenal and Leicester.
